SOURCE: Timer runs, but dryer will not start

Onry, the last 3 letters of the model number is missing. If this is an electric dryer the thermal fuse may be open. On electric dryers if the fuse is open the motor won't run. On gas, the motor will run but will not heat. There are two thermal fuses on the electric model. One on the front of the blower housing and the other on the element enclosure. Check the one on the blower housing first. You will need to remove the door by removing the 4 screws that hold the door hinge and spacers on the other side. Lift up on the door and pull out. Now the front panel will pull out and the blower cover will be visable. If this is a gas dryer we'll have to look elsewhere. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: Tumble Dryer won't start

assuming what you say you checked is correct and working then the next place to look is the start relay, located behind the front timer control panel, this sis more often than not a cubed shape box made of clear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marks inside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or short out to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit board and cause extensive damage

SOURCE: MAYTAG GAS DRYER TUMBLES BUT NO HEAT (FRONT LOADER 6 YRS. OLD)

Hello maryfitgera,
It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all

There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Fin that tumbles clothing inside dryer coming loose, how can I tighten it?


These fins are usually screwed on from the outside of the drum. If you're up to it this is a simple but time consuming fix. Take the cabinet off the front of the dryer, the top will come off as well. be careful of the wires from the control console, they will stay attached to the dryer. Tighten the tumbler fins on the drum and then re-assemble the cabinet. Typically the screws you need to access are the same used for the door latch and hinges. They go back together easy ........

I have a Maytag dryer MDG6200AWW and at first the machine dried the clothes fine but never shut off. The second load got hot but not long enough to dry whole load. The timer does not advance at all. ...


Remove the front panel to get to the gas valve. To remove the panel remove both screws holding the door hinges and the screws on the opposite side from the hinges across the door opening.
Remove the metal bracket holding gas valve coils.
Replace both gas valve coils, part number 279834.

Good luck,

Tumbling vane screw came out - other is loose, banging as clothes tumble - how do i pry(?) open the lid (top shell) to access the drum exterior?


Hi and welcome...
You don't want to pry on anything, that top is secured by hooks and you have to do some dis-assembly to get the top open.

1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into. (This is a reversable door designed for easy removal by the customer)
2. Remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru)
3. Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
4. Look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Lift top.

Hope that helps.
